Created from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon 8" Cook's knife is extremely versatile. The front section is best for smaller jobs, while the rest is perfect for larger ones. Ideal for cutting almost anything, such as meat, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, this knife is capable of slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping with ease. It is an indispensable, all-purpose knife for any kitchen. The 8 inch size is suited for medium-large foods and cooking for families, and it is the most popular size of the most popular knife style.
A contoured, ergonomically-designed handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting allows for comfort as well as permanent security. This perfect grip paired with the blade's sharpness require far less effort to use the knife. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene. Laser testing ensures each hand-honed cutting edge of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Chef's knife is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. The traditional weighted, forward bolster adds heft, while the unique rear bolster equalizes the weight's proportions. This provides ultimate balance and cutting control while still creating an impressively elegant appearance. Allowing for easy sharpening of the entire blade, the precision forward bolster also makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length while cutting.
Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
